About Chicago Mentoring Collaborative:

 in 2017, the Chicago Mentoring Collaborative (CMC) is a partnership of local higher education, K-12, non-profit and community-based organizations committed to strengthening the depth, breadth and success of mentoring programs within Chicago.

CMC is steered by faculty and staff representing DePaul University, Truman College (CCC), University of Illinois- Chicago (UIC), Chicago Public Schools, Mentor Illinois, IMentor, Youth Guidance and Sinai Health Systems.

CMC aims to:

  • Increase the post-secondary outcomes of Chicagoans, including those pursuing higher education, career or trade, and the military.
  • Facilitate the development and sustainability of intrinsically motivated and effective mentoring programs.
  • Keep community voice and culture at the heart of practice.
  • Foster community for Chicago-based mentoring practitioners.

Priorities for 2018-2019:

  • Provide professional development opportunities to practitioners that support mentorship program sustainability and effectiveness.
  • Connect existing K-16 mentoring programs to enrichment opportunities within the higher education community.
  • Map Chicago's mentoring landscape inclusive of K-12, higher education, and community-based programs.
  • Serve as a think-tank partner for Chicago Public Schools and community mentoring practitioners.​
